Stock Up and Save

Happy Wednesday to Everyone,
I have come across some news I think everyone should know. Especially U.S. citizens. Here is the article I found.

Stamp Prices to Go Up 2 Cents -From 42 Cents to 44 Cents in May

The post office will get an extra 2-cents worth when you mail a letter starting in May. The U.S. Postal Service announced Tuesday that the price of a first-class stamp will rise to 44 cents on May 11. That gives plentyof time to stock up on Forever Stamps, which will continue to sell at the current 42-cent rate until the increase occurs. They will remain valid in the future regardless of rate hikes. "The Postal Service is not immune to rising costs which are affecting homes and businesses across America today," said Postmaster General John Potter. "Even with the increases, the PostalService continues to offer some of the lowest postage prices in the world."

So go out and stock up on Forever Stamps and save on future mailings. It could save you lots depending on how much mailing you do. Think of it this way - even the stamps for those monthly bills add up.

Just thought I would share this with you. Have a great day!
